A nicely chilled, downtempo debut on BFW recordings from Ghostkid. Slow, funky grooves and grainy synths that sound like they have appeared out of the heathaze of mid summer. Special thanks to Graham Marlowe for the samples from his piano tapes. Topics: electronic, experimental, IDM
Total running time: 12:59 Entheogen is the music of Goran Pejović, a new producer from Montenegro. 'Singularity' can perhaps be described as IDM - the music certainly has its roots there but there are elements of DnB and something much more delicate and emotive.

A wonderful slice of electronic music from Finland. The second release on BFW from Anthing. "This ep is really personal and includes a mess of motion that I've experienced through this year.

I know it will." - Anthing OTHER RELEASES: 'Slip Deep' [BFW048] Released 19 April 2010 Topic: ambient, IDM, bfw, recordings, anthing
The first release on BFW recordings from Elypixa. 'Too Late For The Peace' is lush IDM - ambient, glitchy and immensely beautiful. Elypixa is a self-taught composer of electronic music, he has very distant English origins... He lives in France and has been composing since 2000. He does not know music theory, he knows very little in music itself! His favorite sentence is : "Any wrong note played is an awkward false note. Any wrong note played with conviction is a ... Improvisation."... Topic: bfw, elypixa, IDM, ambient, glitch

First influenced by psychedelic and blues guitar, Donny cut his early instrumentals on an old two-track cassette recorder he found in his parents' basement.

The fantastic new ambient album from SineRider, his sixth release on BFW. The album is made using a old hand held tape recorder and making drones out of and sampling those recordings. There is hiss and crackle, wow and flutter that could only come from such a source. This gives the album a unique atmospheric feel. Couple that with the ear and skill of a producer such as SineRider and you have an ambient masterpiece on your hands. Topics: sinerider, spinning circles, bfw, ambient, tape, atmospheric, experimental, IDM
Bing Satellites second album proper is a collection of improvised live recordings. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound. Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay. These loops can be quite long, so as a performer I can add notes as I see fit,... Topics: ambient, live, chill, IDM, bing, satellites, twilight, sessions, bfw, recordings
The fourth release on BFW from Eko_Fisk sees a subtle change in direction - the lush and warm ambient textures are joined by sequencer driven Berlin school style electronics.

Eko_Fisk's seventh release on BFW recordings. This is an astonishing piece of work. The quality, chilled electronic ambience of Eko_Fisk has reached another level here. In his own words - Eno, Martin Hannett, in Paris, and it's freezing cold. This is probably some of the best I've done yet.

The third release on BFW recordings from Closer Contact is a collaboration with Meteer. This is an expertly crafted album of abstract ambience. But don't assume that this is a cold album, beause it certainly isn't! Stripped almost completely of melody or rhythm, this is warm, friendly and quite psychedelic. What is left is minimal, beautiful and intelligent. All songs written, arranged, mixed, recorded and produced by Magnus Larsson & Bjorn Asserhed spring 2010.

The excellent debut collaboration between Devin Powers (SineRider) and Graham Marlowe, both of whom will be familiar to many of you from their previous releases on BFW and beyond. We've been looking forward to this album at BFW for a while and it does not disappoint. This is an album of real beauty.

The new experimental ambient EP from Bing Satellites. A heady mix of ambient dub and glitchy electronics along with lush strings and atmospheres. The songs on this EP, unusually for me, all came to life through different processes: Sleepwalking is built around the rhythms of a loop of sound put through a resonator. The sound I recorded when I stuck a microphone out of my window. At that moment, a couple of neighbours were putting out their rubbish. That is what you can hear at the start and...

All music written, performed and produced by Bing Satellites. Something a wee bit different from Bing Satellites. An album of chilled, glitchy ambient music heavily inspired by All The Lost Souls, the collaboration between myself, Getzel and piper_ben.
